About Bindweed Magazine


May the Bindweed grow!

Convolvulus Arvensis, also known as bindweed, is stigmatised as being a nuisance by growing across garden fences and choking off the immaculately pruned flowers. But no one thinks about the beauty of the bindweed, opening their trumpets to the world, shouting to be heard. Is this not the state of publishing today? The neatly manicured, artificially honed flowers, given all the prestige, while the others are left to wilt?

If you are a bindweed flower trying to grow, see our Submission Guidelines and make the world your fence.

What is Bindweed Magazine all about?

Bindweed Magazine aims to publish quality poetry and fiction as an Ezine on the WordPress homepage. Issues 1-8 were published as Ezine and available as print copies; issue 9 onwards (Bindweed Online 2019) is Ezine only.

Who runs Bindweed Magazine?

Editor in Chief: Leilanie Stewart

Editor’s Sahayak: Joseph Robert

Why did Bindweed Magazine come about?

So many magazines these days, both online and in print, are becoming defunct. Bindweed Magazine wants to be another platform for authors to market their work. It’s a labour of love. It’s all about the craft here at Bindweed; you won’t get paid (sadly), but you’ll get promoted nonetheless!

Where is Bindweed Magazine based?

It doesn’t really matter, since we have a worldwide audience, but if you really must know, Bindweed is currently based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. However, we publish quality writing from authors all over the world. So stop by and send us your work…

To get a feel for what we like, back issues are as follows:

Issue 1 – April to June 2016

Issue 2 – July to September 2016

Issue 3 – October to December 2016

Issue 4 – January to March 2017

Issue 5 – April to June 2017

Issue 6 – July to October 2017

Issue 7 – Nov/Dec 2017 and January 2018
